While gamers could have spent the last year celebrating new consoles and exciting developments in gaming, many decided to instead focus on the negative. 

As it is wont to do, the gaming community decided to voice their criticisms and goofs with some silly images, gifs, and memes. We went back and looked through the last year to find the best and funniest and gathered them together for you.

We found that gamers love Sony boss Kaz Hirai. We learned that the Animal Crossing villager is a killer that feels nothing, and we all shrieked at the horror that was Joel McHale hosting the Spike VGX award show. Gaming fans also had a lot to say about the Xbox One’s early digital-rights management issues, Nintendo’s Wii U problems, and the busted launch of SimCity.

Join us as we take a look back at the best memes of 2013:
